Looks like the talking point at Silverstone this year will be about tires - almost prevented a Mercedes win last week. Prevented a potential better finish for both Mercedes this week.

Red Bull kept it cool and their strategy played out well this week. Much deserved win.

well done for Red Bulls and Max they nailed it and did the right thing to go on hard times in Q2.. was such a tight and great race to watch even if there wasnt much overtakes on front of the grid..
well done to Albon as well.. he made some superb overtakes but he needs a better quali for sure this potential is just being wasted by starting a little back of the grid..

Mclarens were a bit lost in the race but RP were better in race pace..

and Ferrari.. im not gonna comment more on Vettel's spin but i guess no one was surprised by that.. and i realized that he started to use left foot braking in this race.. yes they re all braking with left foot but while on partial throttle i mean.. probably more for this race to cover up understeer..
well done to Charles it was great to hear how enthusiastic he was after the race ended.. he brought the car to best position possible.. well done Charles!!

Awesome race from Max. HAM and BOT are vulnerable when their cars aren't on perfect running conditions. Super drive from LEC.

Red Bull's strategy was perfect. That quick stop for the medium tires and then right back to the hard was played well.

Sneaky good race for Charles finishing p4. Perhaps he could have held off Hamilton if he had some more life in his tires.

Was hoping Hulk would have a better finish but still a good race for him nonetheless.

Mate . Spain , Spa , Monza and Mugello are not really cold ....That's the next 4 GP's !
As far as I can feel Belgium is Tropical ...
All this on softer Pirelli rubber compound !

BTW : The RB16-PU got extra cooling in Silverstone 2

And mate . As I said : Power is "Nothing" without Control
